Beau Plan: a city brimming with culture
Beau Plan moves to the rhythm of Mauritian arts and culture, with a particular opening towards the African continent. It offers an ongoing programme of festive and culinary events, artists’ residencies and music, as well as fine crafts, dance and a museum. There’s plenty to satisfy professional and amateur artists, lovers of culture and families looking for fun and educational activities!
Discover Mauritius at L’Aventure du Sucre
L’Aventure du Sucre invites families and culture buffs on a fun and interactive journey to discover the fascinating history of the Mauritian sugar cane industry. This popular museum – the island’s only institution dedicated to the history of sugar – also creates temporary exhibitions focused on the environment and sustainable development every year.
Mavros: a passion for creation
Based in a 160-year-old foundry next to L’Aventure du Sucre, the team behind luxury Zimbabwean jewellery brand Patrick Mavros creates original designs inspired by the flora and fauna of Mauritius and the African continent. The public is invited into the studio to watch the artisans at work and admire their unique craftsmanship.
A playground for dance enthusiasts
Founded over a decade ago, Le Studio welcomes dancers aged 4 to 99. It’s also the headquarters of the Omada dance company, which offers ballet, modern dance and flamenco classes to everyone, regardless of age or ability.
Imagine, create, share
Midway between a co-working space and an art studio, Le Workshop is a place of creation, sharing and relaxation. Artists and entrepreneurs come here to exchange ideas, give classes and develop new projects over a coffee. The space also offers creative workshops that are open to both residents and members of the public.
An eventful region
From the Semaine du Goût to the Île Courts short film festival, Beau Plan celebrates life with a wide range of artistic, musical and culinary events.
At Kaz’Out, a music festival that has been held in Beau Plan for four years running, the public is invited to discover a diverse group of outstanding local, regional and international artists, who perform open-air concerts in a welcoming, family-friendly atmosphere.
Off the beaten track at the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden
Instead of simply visiting the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden, take part in activities with your family or friends! Tai-chi on the lawn, meditation under a banyan tree, a quiz to see how many of the garden’s 85 species of palms you can identify, a picnic by the waterlily pond… With its hundreds of nooks and crannies, its giant turtles and its unique, endemic plant species, the botanical garden is the perfect setting for countless exciting adventures!
